The Sydney Airport Lost Property Auction kicks off this week, with thousands of items going under the hammer to raise funds for charity.

Sydney Airport Chief Executive Kerrie Mather called on everyone to get involved to help support local charities.

“We’re looking forward to another big result this year as we call on the generosity of the community to help us raise as much as possible for charity,” she said.

“With 150,000 people visiting the airport every day, it’s inevitable some things are left behind and this is a great way to find them a new home, and support a great cause.’’

The online auction begins on Wednesday and will be managed by Pickles.

Everything from clothing and electronics to jewellery, cosmetics and accessories will be up for grabs.

All auction items are up for viewing at https://buy.pickles.com.au/lostproperty.
